RIO Elite Integrated Skagit Mini Max Power
RIO's Elite Integrated Skagit Mini Max Power is an easy casting line on trout Spey rods and single handed rods. The powerful short taper on the head turns over sink tips and streamers with ease. If you like to strip flies and Skagit/Spey cast having an integrated line like the Mini Max Power is a great way to go. Having a seamless transition from the head to the running line is really nice compared to having a loop to loop connection going through the guides. To setup your rig with the RIO Elite Integrated Skagit Mini Max Power, you do not need a separate running line. Just connect this line to your backing and then add your sink-tip of choice. We recommend using RIO "Light" MOW tips (T8) or T7 tips.
To determine what size you need from the table below, use the "RIO's Line Size" column if you will be using a Spey rod. Use the "Single Handed Line Size" column if you will be using a standard single-handed fly rod.
Here is what RIO has to say about their Elite Integrated Skagit Mini Max Power line
The Elite Skagit Mini Max Power is the ideal setup for casting streamers and heavy sink tips on light two-handed rods and trout spey with exceptional ease. The unique weight distribution deeply loads the rod for long casts while a powerful front taper delivers enough punch to turn over all the weight you need to get large flies down to the fish. Shorter head lengths make this line the perfect choice for two-handed rods in lighter sizes, enabling easy casts when space behind the caster is limited. Each line is built on RIO's low-stretch ConnectCore Plus with an integrated running line, giving the angler enhanced detection of takes, more positive hook sets, and greater control when playing a fish. In addition, SlickCast coating technology creates the slickest, most durable coating on the market—producing the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.
